the car is running fine. the FE is crap. I never would have NOTICED the FE difference if I did not ever drive on E0. (hence why they don't want any E0 pumps)

And I most certainly am not the only one. Plenty of other people including in this very thread are having the SAME results I am 20-25% reduction in fuel economy. Heck I am 5 people in this scenario alone. Mom Pop Brother Coworker and Me. Plus the few who chimed in on this thread as well and another thread I am on with HUNDREDS of people complaining about the same thing.

To the average person there is not much difference between 46mpg and 55mpg most people would be completely ecstatic with 46 mpg.

I am not because I did the math and KNOW it means I am actually burning MORE GASOLINE (not counting the ethanol) than without ethanol.

and since I DESIRE to make a difference in the world this bothers me. Should bother you to.
